Who we are

Why cycling holidays?

Le Velo Voyageur was created in 2011 by Eugénie and Bérangère, 2 young women who were not predestined to become keen cyclists and yet!

Soon after they met at university, they undertook for the love of adventure to bike along the Danube from Passau (Germany) to the Black Sea despite little training and much experience as city mice. The first 30 kilometers were not that easy but 2.200 km further, they had lived extraordinary moments on their bikes thanks to the people they met, the landscapes they crossed and other unexpected discoveries. To the surprise of their friends and family, they were reluctant to leave their bicycles in the garage at the end of the trip.

Never mind, as soon as they graduated, they started another bike trip to share the pleasure of cycling holidays with others.

A travel agency dedicated to cycle tours in France

So, they were on the road again to find the best cycle routes in France and offer the nicest travel experience: many discoveries, exchanges, stunning things to see, exercise, good food and plenty of rest.

As they were cycling, meeting partners and having feedback from their growing number of guests, they improved their stamina. But most of all, they broadened their catalogue of destinations and services, keeping in mind the different wishes of travelers today.

The very feminine team of Le Velo Voyageur grew in the meantime. Josselyne joined from the very beginning, followed later by Chloé and Sarah. After cycling, a lot needs to be done: describing, mapping, answering to questions, booking, organizing, checking, printing and counting so that everything goes smooth and our guests keep un-forget-table memories of their holidays!

We have decided to offer cycling holidays only because we like to be expert at what we do and because we have many ideas to offer more (and always better) cycling holidays.

Meet our team!



Eugénie

  • She likes : her bike Bobby, visiting baroque churches, testing her excellent knowledge of German by speaking to Austrian and Hungarians village residents.
  • She doesn't like : too straight roads, being passed by 80 year old Austrian riders, the mount of Babadagolui.

Bérangère

  • She likes : the soft cushion of cycling shorts, snack breaks with chocolate biscuits, trying sign language with Serbian women or grandpas.
  • She doesn't like : Hungarian palinka at breakfast time, tan marks on the legs , sleeping next to the stereo in a Roumanian camping.
* The abuse of alcohol can harm your health, consume in moderation.

Chloé

  • She likes : fluffy saddles, the smell of wine during the harvest, a hot bath after a day of cycling, a bite of "éclair au chocolat" on the road
  • She doesn't like : too steep uphills (all the more after a generous choucroute), having a red nose from the sun, riding against the wind

Josselyne

  • She likes : to catch the bus without waiting, the freedom to stop to admire a landscape, a garigue smell in a downhill
  • She doesn't like : bumping into a car door opening on her way, carrying her bike to go on the train.

Sarah

  • She likes : dancing till dawn, the inventor of the e-bike, finding the best restaurants in each town(by testing them of course), befriending cats in each village
  • She doesn't like : hills, looking for a way in Breton, uncomfortable saddles.
